Labor Cabinet to Hold Employer Seminar in Louisville

by Stephanie Crosby

A two-day seminar will be held later this week to train some 200 Louisville-area employers on various labor laws. The Kentucky Labor Cabinet is holding the session.

Policy advisor Mike Donta says many employers statewide are interested in the training.

“We get requests on a regular basis to hold specific trainings for people,” says Donta. “Yet with the budget situation within our cabinet, we weren’t able to meet each of those needs, so we decided to do it on a regional basis and take it to the employers instead of them coming to us.”

Donta says it’s the first time they’ve conducted these on-the-road seminars. Classes have already been held in Paducah and Owensboro.

The Louisville seminar is set for Wednesday and Thursday at the Hartford Building at Kentucky Community and Technical College.
